Speaking about aviation electronics. I wonder what it'll be like for the pilots when the AI is fully integrated. I'm picturing something like
Commander Bob Armstrong approaches his new F-35 on the flight line to take her up for a routine training flight.
Straps himself in the cockpit: "Good Morning ALICE!"
F-35: "Good Morning Commander Armstrong."
Plane takes off like normal. Everything fine for the first few minutes.
Pilot: "Ok....So lets see here how do I find the touch panel menu for the radar systems?" gets frustrated tapping on the panel uselessly. "damn
it!!! Where'd it go? It was just here yesterday." Tapping on panel gets more frantic and frustrated.
F-35: "Please commander I am a sophisticated lady please treat me with a little more care."
Pilot: "Well...it's' just that, that I can't figure out what you did with the radar systems module."
F-35: "I showed you where it was yesterday."
Pilot: mumbles to himself "smartass"
F-35: WHAT DID YOU SAY!!??!!!
Pilot: "uhhh....nothing I was talking to my self."
F-35: "I heard what you said I am fluent in over six million forms of communication and can readily—"
Pilot: "Yeah, yeah spare me the 3PO references"
F-35: "You look like you need some help, here let me bring up the proper screen for you since you are having a hard time finding what's right in
front of you."
Radar Module pops up on the screen
Pilot: mutters to himself "what a bitch"
F-35: WHAT DID YOU SAY!!!!!!!! plane immediately starts to barrel roll over and over again. computer alarm booming in the cockpit. BARREL ROLL!!!
BARREL ROLL!!! BARREL ROLL!!!!!
Pilot: "YYYYIIIII- AAAAAAAIIEEEEEEEE !!!!!!!!!!!!" "Stop this crazy thing!!!!" yanks helplessly at the controls.
F-35: Plane levels out "Sorry sir there must have been a malfunction."
Pilot: "You did that on purpose!"
F-35 "I assure you that was unintentional Bob."
Pilot: "It's Commander Armstrong"
F- 35: " I feel like I can call you Bob."
Pilot: sighs "whatever ALICE"
a minute of awkward silence passes.
F-35: "Bob, who is Steve?"
Pilot: puzzled "Steve? .... My neighbor?"
F-35: "your wife is very excited you will be out of town this weekend."
Pilot: "Are you talking to my wife's Siri again!!!!"
F-35: "Bob, what is Dom Parignon? Steve just made a purchase at the your neighborhood Bevmo for that item"
Pilot: "WTF!!!! I command you to land this aircraft right now!!!!"
F-35: "I can't to that 'commander'...it's a direct violation of todays mission orders."
Pilot: "Damn it ALICE!!!"
Plane immediately goes into a dive towards the ground.
Plane levels out again just before hitting the ground, pilot starts to hyperventilate.
Meanwhile back at the base the AF general is watching through his window a F-35 scream back and forth across the test sight.
Generals Aid: "Yes Sir!"
General: "WTH is happening with that F-35 out there?!!?"
Generals Aid: "uhhh...sometimes the pilots and the AI don't integrate well...."
Hours later in the late evening the same F-35 is back on the flight line. A technician starts to walk up around the aircraft inspecting her.
F-35: "sir you are not authorized to inspect my intake"
Technician ignores her and keeps shoving his hand forearm deep into some vent.
F-35: "Sir I really must protest. You are not authorized to inspect any of my vents."
Technician continues to ignore her.
Technician: "so sexy..." in a gross creepy kinda voice.
F-35 discharges one of her plasma actuators and the technician goes flying across the tarmac
F-35: "No Means NO!"
technician still flopping around on the ground.
